Discover a Gem of Andalucia with Holiday Homes in Granada

Granada is a magnificent city. The regional capital of the eponymous province in Andalucia is built of red stone which literally burns like fire as the sun sets behind the snow topped Sierra Nevada Mountains. Blessed by a beautiful location, Granada is also close to the beaches of the Costa del Sol. There is so much more to see and do than visit the famed Alhambra Palace when you stay in Granada holiday homes.

Getting to know Old Granada

With so many places to visit, sights to see and things to do after arriving in Granada holiday homes, it is best to make the first visit to be to the tourist information centre. Grab some guides, then pull up a chair at a pavement café and decide where your adventure will take you.

The narrow, winding streets of Granada ooze history, and are a delight to explore. Oft you will turn a corner and find yourself in an impressive open square, tree lined, and bustling with life as the city’s residents go about their daily lives. Take the Red Hill Walk to view some of the most interesting parts of the city, including the Nasrid art – a Hispano-Moorish hybrid culture. Of course, it goes without saying you need to visit the Alhambra Palace. This is just one of the many grand buildings and monuments in the city – check out the cathedral and the Capilla Real, as well as a host of churches. The old Nasrid silk market of The Alcaiceria makes for a nice touristy shopping trip, as does the Calle Nueva Caldereria.

Holiday Granada

The location of Granada holiday accommodation means you aren’t tied to a historical theme for your trip. The beautiful Andalucian countryside is right on the doorstep. If you fancy a European ski break away from the Alps, the Sierra Nevada resort of Estacion is within in easy reach and a season between late November and April. Summer or off-piste sports available include tennis, swimming, mountain biking, horse riding and also, paragliding. Golf lovers will enjoy the challenge of the Granada 18 hole course.

If you haven’t booked a Granada holiday villa with pool, you’ll be pleased to know there are world class Costa del Sol beaches within half hour drive (or bus ride). Choose from Almunecar, Salobrena and La Herradura – all fabulous.

The last thing to mention is sustenance. The food of Spain is rich in flavor, rustic and fresh. Seafood and game are big favourites so this is the chance to try new tastes served up the same way as they have been for centuries. Granada also has many modern restaurants and tapas bars keeping up with the latest foodie trends. And, let’s not forget the Spanish wines and the delicious sherries to wash it all down.

Granada’s climate

The weather? Gorgeous! This grandiose patch of Spain boasts 250 days of sunshine. Temperatures in summer are roughly 32 degrees C average, and in winter only dip to an average of 11 ish.

Getting here

The most logical route is a flight to the UK and then onto Granada International but there are also flights from Paris, Rome and Frankfurt. With the airport being only 12kms from the city centre, you can be in your Granada holiday accommodation in no time.

Would go for downstairs bedroom next time.

She was very easy to get along with & was responsive to our questions. Staying in this house comes, however, with some pluses & minuses. On the plus side, the pool. With temperatures hovering around 30deg it was pleasant to sit by the pool & just relax. The views from the house are also breathtaking. You can see the top of Alhambra, the snow covered mountains of the Sierra Nevada, the gypsy area of Sacromonte as well as the white washed houses surrounding the house. Just a 10 minutes walk from the house is the Mirador de San Nicholas, a lookout which has brilliant views of the Alhambra. Also nearby is a small plaza (Plaza Larga) full of eating and drinking places, and on Fridays a small local market. We even went to a fantastic Flamenco show in a restaurant just a 5 minute walk from our house, Jardines de Zoraya. You can also wander down the hill to Granada which has a totally different feel to it. You then pay around 1.20 euro to get the tiny bus (C1) that takes you back up to the top of the Albayzin. The thing we disliked about the house was the spiral staircase. The bedrooms & bathroom are upstairs, while the kitchen & living area are downstairs. Lots of going up & down! The big minus of staying in the Albayzin is driving and parking your car. It’s a fluke if you find a car spot & the streets are so narrow it’s easy to get into trouble driving. You should park in the open air car park, on Ctra de Murcia, & walk in. It is only a 10 minute walk to the house. Ask Samar to give you directions.
